Braided Eternity Scarf

Hey all!

Well, here is my first attempt at my own pattern. Woohoo!!! I'm sure I'm not the first to create this scarf. Actually, I'm positive I'm not cause I saw a picture of a similar scarf on Pinterest. :) That was my inspiration. But I didn't find a pattern. Soooooo... I created one!


Please forgive any mistakes I made. If you have any questions about the pattern, feel free to ask and I will try by best to clarify :)

For starters, I think I used about 3oz of yarn (you can pretty much use scraps for this scarf)

I used an H (5mm) crochet hook
(This pattern is pretty flexible, so you can use whatever size hook you feel inclined to use) :)


:::Terms used:::
Ch: Chain
St: Stitch
DC: Double Crochet
SC: Single Crochet


Ch 150
DC in 3rd st from hook
DC all the way across. 
Ch 2, turn. DC all the way across, DC in top of Ch 3.
*Ch 2, turn, DC across*
Repeat *-* 2 more times or until desired thickness (mine was 5 rows total)
Fasten off

Repeat pattern 2 more times (3 "strands" total)

SC along the long sides in a contrasting color

Now, Line up the 3 strands side by side and SC across the top (attaching them together)
Braid them, then line up the ends and SC across to hold together. Bring the two sides together and SC or whip stitch them together. Weave in ends

There you have it! 

Pretty cool, huh

Have fun crocheting and good luck! :)


  1. That is beautiful and I love how you can speak "crochet" after all of your experience. Your pictures are gorgeous too!

  2. Do you recall what weight you used for this yarn?

    1. Hmmmmmm.... I don't remember. It was scraps from my Grandma and it didn't have the wrapping. I would think that worsted weight would be fine. Because of the flexibility of the pattern, you could really use anything and crochet till it hit the length and width you desire. Good luck! :)

    2. Thanks! I found some in the color I wanted and gave it a shot...here's hoping it works. :o)

    3. Awesome! Good luck! Any more questions, feel free to ask :)
